Laverne & Shirley Sing

More fake music from TV land... it's Laverne and Shirley!

It's bad enough that people in the 70s couldn't distinguish between actors and musicians (witness records by the likes of Telly Savalas, Sebastian Cabot, Leonard Nimoy and countless others). Apparently, though, they couldn't tell the difference between real people and fictional characters either. Check out this record of blase quasi-50's tunes by Laverne and Shirley. It's actually actors Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams who sing here, but they stay completely in character, performing as if Laverne and Shirley were real people with their own singing careers.

I hate to be the one to break the news, but Laverne and Shirley aren't real. The songs they sing aren't real. The steps they're sitting on in this picture are inside a Hollywood sound stage, not in downtown Milwaukee. Even their cute ice pops are most likely made out of plastic to avoid dripping on their fake sweaters. Take my advice, throw out your television and buy more records. It's the only path to true elightenment.

Songs:

Sixteen Reasons (MP3) Wherein the girls enumerate the "Sixteen reasons why I love you". I bet they're talking about the Fonz.
More from our Yearbook (MP3) All the names they mention in this song are people who assisted in the production of the album. If you ask me, that's blurring the line between truth and fiction a little too much.

Frank points out a lot of the fake dimensions of this album, but--after I opened up the larger version of the cover image--I'm pretty sure that that isn't really Cindy Williams, the actress who played Shirley. It's a close likeness . . . but . . . hmmmm. (03-25-2004)

I bet if you combined you love for Punk Rock, Moog music and Classical (plus those Big Muffs!), you could do something completely New and Original.

You just need to work in Fonzie, Laverne and Shirley (an let's not forget Lenny & the Squigtones either!)

I have the "lenny & the squigtones" album on vinyl. Most of it is pretty cheesy, especially the inane banter between the two, however, there are a few decent songs and it is the first recorded appearance of the three main members of "spinal tap". (12-12-2003)

And in the future, Bill Cosby will release an album singing as Heathcliff/Clifford Huxtable and Jasmine Guy will release "Whitley Butchers the Classics--Again." (09-18-2003)

Anna (anna@momandpopcultureshop.com) says:
Lenny and the Squigtones is a great album. Michael McKean and David L. Lander were a comedy duo before they were hired to be on Laverne and Shirley. (Puns always intentional.)
One of the musicians on the album is listed as Nigel Tufnel, and this was way before Spinal Tap! (08-06-2003)

tootles (bigbear@mail.wowmail.com) says:
I'm curious if anybody knows wot I have - I have a little 45 RPM, which is marked "Laverne and Shirley - Dream" in handwriting and "(for Atlantic)" and stamed with the date May 21, 1977, and was released by "Speciality Records". I guess it is a test pressing of some kind? Any clues? Please write me if you know anything! Thanks! (06-25-2003)
